Sebastian Vettel could be stripped of his third F1 world championship if it can be proved that he passed Jean-Eric Vergne under yellow flags at Interlagos on Sunday.

Apparently the footage from the on car camera, which shows the incident, was not shown on the live broadcast, as the Brazilian producers were airing a replay of the start. The footage only seems to have emerged, at the BBC, after the race. It was spotted by some viewers who were using the red button to watch on board footage and I believe that they brought it to the attention of those who are now looking into it.

Why do people not agree that the title should not change hands now? True, Vetel may have done something wrong but the stewards should have acted immediately. Now it's over, it puts Ferrari in a bad light - such a shame because so many of us have been giving Alonso nothing but priase for much of the season...

Wow - it wouldn't be F1 if there wasn't controversy. (Sing it Prince!)

Have to say I'm torn on this appearing now...

Half of me says let the result stand...Vettel over the season was stronger. WDC

The other half of me says Vettel broken a fundamental rule of motor racing by passing under yellow and if this is not taken seriously, then we may as well have no rules what so ever...its sets a bad precedent!

Unfortunately it was VETTEL who transgressed and broke a simple rule that all drivers are aware of
- and that is there for SAFETY REASONS so it is not a minor thing but is important for protection of Marshalls LIVES

He should have obeyed the rules , chose not to, so it is about implementation of a Safety Rule and nothing to do with bad losing or sportsmanship
The FIA are duty bound to investigate under there own regulations - nothing to do if Ferrari protest or not

You can bet your bottom dollar that RedBull would be pushing hard for investigation if the roles were reversed

I don't know how this can't be resolved quickly, yes vettels lights are flashing in his car but the green flag was raised before the green light(there is a marshals post at the start of the straight), its hard to see but its defiantly there.
